The importance of preconception health for you and your baby
Why Preconception Health Matters
Preconception health is so important because it can have an impact, not only on your health, but also the health of your baby and on your likelihood of conceiving. However many of us are relatively in the dark about what we should be doing and when. To solve this problem we've created the Béa Fertility Preconception Guide that will be launching soon. More info below.
Introducing The Béa Fertility Preconception Guide
Because it can be confusing to know exactly what you should be doing before trying for a baby and when, we had Béa’s in-house Clinical Embryologist and Fertility Coach, Sandy Christiansen, spend months distilling her 10+ years of experience into one easy-to-follow preconception guide.
We asked Sandy for her top tips for optimising preconception health that you can begin right away, here’s what she said:
1. Stop smoking
2. Consider the right interim birth control for you. Read our previous newsletter on this topic.
3. Start taking essential supplements. Find out more in the video below.
Sandy gives an introduction to the Preconception Guide and her recommendations on essential supplements for preconception health in the video below:
Preconception Health Webinar
Join Sandy as she talks through essential steps in planning for a pregnancy and how to optimise your preconception health. This will be a virtual event held on Wednesday 10th of August at 7pm.
